As we are getting close to bidding the cold blistering winter goodbye and embracing the sunshine and all the frivolity it brings, I wanted to share with you guys my favourite runway looks for spring/summer 2012, why i love them so much and most importantly get your wardrobe fashion savvy for the forthcoming season.
Diane von Furstenberg
“Some fairy tales end with the girl marrying the prince… some start there.” So read the quote at the top of the program notes for Diane von Furstenberg‘s Spring show, i love this collection the colours print and patterns screams a mature bohemian woman. I did not want to bore you guys with the whole collection but here are my favourite pieces from show.
When you think of an Emilio Pucci design, you think exotic prints and patterns that ooze louche, loud and bold pieces.But this was not really the case for spring/summer 2013
The designer, who was not shy about using the occasional military reference as well as traditional Asian motifs, showed bomber jackets (some embroidered with the house logo), sheer veiling, tattoo embroideries. It was pretty obvious where the designer; Peter Dundas majorly looked to Vietnam for inspiration.
Well according to Fendi, “There are no machines; it’s all by hand.” This unique feature was obvious in the coats composed of fur or fabric. Furthermore the collection was seamless. Instead of stictching some kind of electrical welding was used for the collection which guaranteed that the leathers and fantastic crocodile napas looked feather-lightThe collection looks fun, playful yet elegant, effortless yet smart. This is definitely for the grown and sexy woman who loves to have fun but is still every bit the boss lady in her daily life.
Haider Ackermann is well-known for his lavish, layered silhouettes; and his evocative runway shows. Ackermann employed graphic, geometric prints and a stricter palette mostly black, white, and navy.IT is so easy to fall in love with all his pieces and chose favourites.
I know which ones i love x.
The show was a fabulous cabaret; the clothes were a homage to all the pop stars of the eighties.
Gaultier’s tribute to the eighties opened with Grace Jones, Annie Lennox ,Madonna and Boy George…The show was more entertaining than what most ready to wear shows would offer as i am sure no one in the right senses would go out in a coned bra and fishnet tights in this day and age. Although it still had some seriously high fashion suits and black dresses that would fit right in on a red carpet.
Van Noten’s mostly known for his explorative, seductive investigation of the masculine/feminine dynamic which is the foundation of his aesthetic. This season, that dynamic was completely integrated with silks; organza, taffeta and lame.
This is my favourite collection for this season. It borderlines between androgyny and femininity. It’s like a the wardrobe of a teenage tomboy who is about to turn 21 and discovers how to balance who she is with how she should look.
I am very sure some of this will creep up the trend radar soon.
Would love to know what you guys think and most importantly what your favourite spring summer 2013 shows are.
let’s have a discussion people!
